The 2021 BMW 5 Series is one of the best new BMW models on sale today. It’s one of the last sedans that the automaker hasn’t spoiled with the simple German sedan formula that hides motorsport-level performance. The new range-topping M5 CS has now leaked early and is thankfully still ordered outside and brutally under the hood.
2021 M5 CS featured in last month’s teaser. The video confirms that the new top-of-the-line Series 5 will offer 626 hp – 10 hp more than the M5 Competition and 26 hp more than the standard M5 – and from a tuned version of the 4.4-liter V8 twin turbo -Motor of the model comes from.
The 2021 M5 has a slightly more rotating camouflage band on either end of the body and looks like it’s sporting redesigned headlights with new lighting. The taillights are also expected to be new, bringing the entire 5 Series in line with the rest of the BMW range. They are characterized by a slimmer and more elegant design and of course LED technology.
Another interesting thing is the front grille; Fortunately, the upgraded Series-5s, including the M5, don’t get a vertical kidney setup, but the grille itself mimics the shape of the X5, X6, and 8 series.
The M5 has an elegant leather interior with supporting sports seats. Unlike many of its competitors, BMW doesn’t use a touchscreen mode, so setting the air conditioning or radio (via physical controls) is easy while driving. The M5 has many desirable features like adjustable interior lighting, a heated steering wheel, heated front seats, and a power steering column.
BMW offers a ventilated front seat with massage function, heated rear seats and four-zone automatic climate control for more coins. The M5 has a practical cube in the cabin and the trunk offers space for six hand luggage cases. The CS model features a more racing-inspired interior with a unique style and badge, as well as lightweight carbon front seats with substantial support. It’s also the first M5 with just four seats, with two bucket seats replacing the back seats on the regular M5.
The 4.4-liter twin-turbo V-8 S63’s power remains unchanged for 2021: 600 hp and 553 lb-ft of torque from the base model, and 617 hp and 553 lb-ft of torque if you switch to the competition . The base car can accelerate to 60 mph in just 3.2 seconds, while the competition can sprint in just 3.1 seconds.
The top speed for both cars is limited to 250 km / h. However, if you specify the M driver package, the jump is 300 km / h. Power is still transmitted to all four wheels via an eight-speed automatic torque converter transmission and a Trick xDrive system with full rear-wheel drive.
